September Lunch Program

Using Health IT to Encourage a Patient Focus

With all of the emphasis on EMR’s and data privacy issues in healthcare delivery, it can be easy to forget that patients are the source of all that information.  Whether you are engaged in healthcare delivery or in the development of tools that interface with patient populations, how technology is applied to an interactive situation can dramatically affect the relationship between patients and providers and in some cases, even the effectiveness of treatment.  Please join us as our panel explores what it takes to successfully use healthcare IT from the patient perspective.
